It feels as if we JUST updated our ginormous supermarket list... but it was way back in June. (Time flies!) So here are a few TERRIFIC new finds that are totally deserving of a spot in your shopping cart. Read on! 

 
 
So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage

PER SERVING (1 cup): 50 calories, 5g fat, 15mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 1g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*

This alterna-milk recently popped up on our radar, and we're COMPLETELY psyched. Don't confuse this dairy-free drink with the thick, creamy goo you get from a can. This is lean, light, and naturally sugarless. If you're looking for a low-cal milk swap without soy, rice, or almonds, here's a great option for you. Yes, it has some fat, but the calorie count is still WAY lower than skim milk. Try it out! P.S. It comes in both refrigerated cartons and shelf-stable boxes. (Score!)

 
 
 
New & Improved! Soyjoy Bars

PER SERVING (1 bar): 130 - 140 calories, 4.5 - 6g fat, 45 - 50mg sodium, 16 - 17g carbs, 2 - 4g fiber, 11 - 12g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

That's right. SOYJOY. We never thought we'd be recommending it either, but the bars recently underwent a makeover and came out tastier, more moist, and with a brand-new AMAZING flavor in the lineup. The new variety, Banana, is the one that initially won us over. And after trying the improved Blueberry and Strawberry treats, we're officially on team Soyjoy!

 
 
 
New Flavors! Blue Diamond Almonds 100-Calorie Packs

PER SERVING (1 pack): 100 calories, 8 - 9g fat, 0 - 80mg sodium, 3 - 5g carbs, 2g fiber, 1 - 3g sugars, 3 - 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

"But HG, haven't these been out for a while?" Not these NEW kinds, people! Now you've got wild ones like Wasabi & Soy Sauce, Cinnamon Brown Sugar, and Dark Chocolate along with standards like Sea Salt, Lightly Salted, and Whole Natural. All of them are near and dear to our hearts. And mouths.

 
 
 
Litehouse Tangy Orange Citrus Dressing, Sauce & Marinade

PER SERVING (2 tbsp.): 50 calories, 0g fat, 190mg sodium, 13g carbs, 0g fiber, 12g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*

How many dressings in your fridge also function as a marinade and a sauce? Eh, probably a few... but how many of them have won an award for "Dressing of the Year"? Not quite so many! This amazingly versatile and super-delicious multitasker is great on fish, chicken, leafy greens, stir-frys... You name it; this sweet item is probably good on it. (OK, maybe not VitaTops... but you know what we mean!)

 
 
 
StarKist Low Sodium Albacore White Tuna in Water Pouches

PER SERVING (one 2.6-oz. pouch): 90 calories, 1g fat, 70mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 21g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*

Albacore tuna from a can or pouch is a delicious and easy way to get more fish into your diet... but what if you're keeping an eye on your sodium intake? Face it: Most of us do NOT need as much salt as we typically get from packaged foods, so it's smart to cut some out when we can. This pouched tuna is a GREAT example of how to do just that. Especially if you're just gonna mix a bunch of yummy stuff into it anyway; start with a less salty base!

CHEW ON THIS:

Hey! It's National Fig Week! Have you tried Figamajigs? The bars and bite-sized candies are a great way to get a sweet chocolatey fix without going overboard on the junky stuff. YUM!
